The Writers View

The Loved Ones movie is kinda twisted, kinda sick, but the utterly convincing Aussie bloodletting exercises that transcends anguish porn whilst getting drunk in the sick sense of humor. With ironic observations on teen’s meditations and angst on grief, loneliness, forbidden desires, and alienation Sean Byrne’s film is out to not only shock the audience. Having that obvious small funds work from, hten Byrne just has kept things minimal and tight, this helps the movie considerably, adding the sort of realism in the characters just before it went into overdrive since Brent discovers that politely refusing Lola’s request has welcomed the latest world of pain. There is the misstep of the subplot involving one more fumbling Goth pair actually making the actual prom date, it served no purpose aside from the horny angst ration, but this is likely sick/slick stuff.
